Sydney's newest luxury hotel ups the hype

There is a lot of hype swirling around the opening of Australia's first Kimpton hotel in Sydney on February 1.

The space formerly occupied by the Primus Hotel has been given a complete makeover and the promo blurb insists the Kimpton Margot will be the "city’s most exciting hotel development of the decade".

Previous guests will remember how beautiful the building is with its 1930s vibe but the Kimpton, with celebrity chef Luke Mangan on board, promises a range of new experiences.

Social Hour, which will see guests come together for daily complimentary drinks between 5-6pm, will be when Margot comes alive.

The drinks on offer will vary daily - from boutique Australian wines to a Four Pillars G&T, or Kimpton’s signature Margot cocktail.

Social Hour could be hosted in the lobby, on the mezzanine surrounded by artworks, or at the rooftop bar, by the pool. It might all depend on the weather.

Mindfulness and wellness (two essential hotel buzzwords nowadays) will be provided by Kimpton’s partnership with Egg of the Universe, where guests are invited to workout, stretch, or do a few vinyasas from the comfort of their room, through a selection of yoga workouts available on tablet and TV.

Yoga mats and accessories will be available on request at no charge.

“Forgot it, we’ve got it” - a signature Kimpton Margot promise - means guests can call downstairs for an electrical charger, blow dryer, dry shampoo, a tie, shoe polish or whatever. The boast is that the team will bring it right up.

Kimpton Margot Sydney has a partnership with Lekker bikes and has mapped out the best of Sydney on wheels. Guests are free to just take some wheels and explore the city streets and nearby Hyde Park at their leisure.

Away from the bustle of Pitt Street are 172 spacious rooms and suites – most with bathtubs and all with Mr Smith (sorry, who is he?} amenities. The walls will feature whimsical wall art from global artists - close to 600 in all.

The rooftop swimming pool is surrounded by a terrace, conference and event spaces while Luke’s Kitchen will have a menu curated by chef Luke Mangan.

Cellar By Luke will highlight a unique wine experience, where guests can dine on daily culinary curations surrounded by walls of Australian and International wines. 

Also set amid the Art Deco decor will be the 1930’s-style The Wilmot Bar, with a range of cocktails.

Located in the heart of Sydney’s “south-side”, just down from the State Theatre and the QVB and close enough to be within walking distance to Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, Kimpton Margot Sydney is in a prime location.

Rates at Kimpton Margot Sydney will start from $350.
